Cart Rules - Shipping only Discounts

Hi all, 

 

I am brand new to these forums and with only a few months using Magento. I apologize if I'm in the wrong place or asking something obvious that has been asked many times, but I've done a few searches and cannot seem to find an answer. 

 

Can I add a coupon code for 50% off of shipping - and nothing else? We'd like to offer first time customers 50% off shipping but we can't seem to make that work without also taking 50% off the entire cart as well as shipping. 

 

Is what I am trying to do possible?

Yes that suggested solution only will work when cart have shipping method selected or estimated shipping in cart page only. Rest you have to customize your codebase.

Hello @john_conforti 

 

You can apply discount separately on subtotal and shipping as follows:shipping.PNG

I appreciate the screenshot, but that's what I don't want it to do. I only want 50% off shipping. That's taking it off shipping AND the subtotal.

You can do by adding condition for SKU = none and that condition will never meet and discount will apply only on apply on shipping.

 

Try this if this will work for you else you have to customize your codebase.

Re: Cart Rules - Shipping only Discounts

Thanks for the fast reply! We actually did try and set it up like that - we keep getting the error message "code is invalid." Now, admittedly I'm relatively new to Magento. But the company designing our company's website is very familiar with it, and even he was having trouble making it work with that setup. He even tried to set up a dual rule which would take just a fixed amount (1 cent) off the total while applying 50% off shipping, but we couldn't get that to work either (that would be acceptable to us as well). The only time we can get the coupon code to work is if it takes 50% off of both the subtotal and the shipping.

Thank you - I really appreciate that. Our website designer has been working to make that happen on the back end and I'm satisfied he'll have a solution for us. I really appreciate your help and a confirmation of our way forward.

 

Take care!
